    Removing cerakote

    How big a job is it to remove cerakote and repolish a barrelled action and what would it cost, saw a rifle I'd like if it didn't look like a cat puked on it - I'm puzzled why someone would cerakote a build only to put it up for sale after proof, maybe the colour looked better in their head

    Recomendations for reloading manual

    id look @ what powders u can actually get and use their reloading data most of which now listing specific bullet and primer powder combinations all will have the basic OAL, pressures. funny there was a conversation at the range on reloading manuals the other day and how now 75% of the powders listed in most are no longer available. those calibres youve listed have all the info published on the net.

    Brass shrinkage!

    they have simply blown out to fit the chamber, shortening in the process- (brass being sucked back) full size now and they will be fine

    Scenar 155 and Swiss Reload

    looking for a varget altern 2 of us did a test with RS50 and the 155sc using our 30" ftr rigs using both lp & palma lapua brass with varius primers .the large primer brass topped out at 46g @ 2922fps es 14 ,@ 46.3g 2915 es 23, 46.6 2908 es 37 not much diff between the fed 210 and the cci brs.45.7g gave single fig es bang on 2900 . the palma brass using the cci 450 s topped out on 45.8 @ 2864 FPS es 20, with 46g 2860, 46.2 2858. with the cci br s 46g gave 2902 es 5 and @ 46.2 2894 es 16. we found the same thing with the .223 using 69S topped out @ 3000fps on 25.5 any more and the speed reversed. seems to perform best lowest es with a gap between bullet and powder charge with compressed charge es was poor even with compressed loads the were no pressure signs, found it a little smokey on firing but not to dirty
